Since Ayana's first discovery of pre-colonial literature in 2014, PA Reads was established on Instagram in 2018.
PA Reads (Pan-Afrikan Reads) is focused on selling books that uplift, educate, and explore the African diaspora and its’ authors. The aim of this bookstore is to provide a blueprint of books relating to activism, pre-colonial history, and source of literature not widely distributed. With the effervescence of socio-political movements and uprisings, we seek to provide a steady stream of educational and informative books that empower generations.
Our online store was established in 2020. We can learn from our ancestors, implement action, and spread knowledge within our communities in order to build a future in which we have control over our own narrative. We are synonymous with activism, empowerment, and knowledge, and committed to providing a blueprint selection of books for this.
